SoilTech Garlic Gard is an all-natural, foliar-applied repellent spray that actively repels flying insects and nuisance animals. Garlic Gard is very effective as a mosquito repellent, and is safe for people, pets, and wildlife. Spray the diluted garlic juice on landscape plants and lawns, in the early part of the day, to repel insect pests for up to two weeks. Garlic Gard repellent may be used as a stand-alone formula or it may be mixed with conventional pesticides to enhance performance. Garlic Gard is an EPA exempt, minimum-risk product. The garlic spray becomes odorless to humans in a few minutes, but remains effective as a repellent for weeks.
